messing with a clock Answered

For Halloween I want to create a little knock off of the clock from Disney's Haunted Mansion. I have found a great image of the clock face online. How feasible would it be for me to hack a simple electric clock and have it 1) run backwards and 2) run very fast

Easiest would be with a little DC motor and the right sprocket to match the gears of the clock.

Search for "backwards clock" in the let's make box at the top. There are a few ibles that show how to rig the cheap battery powered mechanism to run backwards.

To run fast may be a little more involved.


Good luck.
